Hey, on that can i get internet explorer off my computer in one shot? I tried the remove hardware in the control pannel but its not on there. Should I just go through and delete every icon or is there an uninstall somewhere?

As long as you don't use it, IE is harmless. There is some solution Microsoft provides to remove it completely, but if you just delete the shortcuts to it, and make your other browser the default browser (option during the installation) it won't bother you any more. My only big gripe with it is that it uses up system resources while it's running, and never reallocates memory back to you. I recommend if you do use IE, you reboot before downloading or burning or any RAM-intensive activity.
